Main article: Leaders (Civ2)

The default male leader of the Sioux is Sitting Bull (c. 1831–1890), a chief of the Lakota Sioux responsible for numerous raids against American forts, railroad surveyors, and settlers in the Dakotas and Montana. His most famous victory was at the Little Bighorn. He fled to exile in Canada before joining Buffalo Bill's Wild West show with 20 of his warriors. When his arrest was ordered to prevent him from joining the Ghost Dance movement, his supporters opened fire on the police, but two Lakota policemen shot him dead.

The default female leader is Sacajawea, a variant spelling of Sacagawea (1788–1812). Sacagawea was a Lemhi Shoshone kidnapped as a teenager by the Hidatsa and sold as a "wife" to a French Canadian trapper. She and her "husband" worked as interpreters, guides, and assistants to the American Lewis & Clark expedition. They eventually settled in St. Louis.

Sioux leaders use governments' default titles except under despotism and monarchy. A Sioux emperor or empress is known as a "Chief". A Sioux king or queen is styled as a "Great Chief".


The Sioux AI is balanced.
